I love shawls and have knitted many but find that I don't wear them; after all that work, Shameful!
I found that most of the shapes are angular, where I prefer soft, round shapes. I set out to design a scalloped shawl which could be as deep or shallow as I wish. Bonus: start and end (CO and BO) with only 3 stitches!
Of all the shawls I have knitted over the past 13 years, the Abalone shawls are worn the most!
Pattern is completely written and charted.
22 stitches and 27 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette stitch
